Click to go to the web site for the Afton Trail Run in Afton, Minnesota

Course Discription:The start is located near the Interpretive Center, not far from the center of Afton State Park. It is a hilly, 25K loop (two laps for the 50K), that winds through the park's trail system. The course is clearly marked with ribbons, with clusters of ribbons at all possibly "tricky" intersections. There is a measured gain/loss of 6300 feet for the 50K course.

Of prime concern are the hills. These rise from the river up rocky ravines. Caution is advised. At times, the footing is difficult, especially on the downgrade. But, for the most part, the trail is on well-established footing through the woodlands. This year, as we did last year, we will include some of the Bigfoot Snowshoe single-track trails. And, if Mother Nature cooperates, two or three water crossings of Trout Brook will also be included between miles 11 and 12. Don't worry - the water will be no more than 12 inches deep, and will require no more than 2-3 strides to traverse.

Aid Stations:Aid will be available approximately every 3 miles, and will include water, coke, sports drink, fruit, and snacks. We expect this to be a hot weather race, and we encourage you to carry water.

Time Limit:We have established an 8 hour time limit. Starting at the 25K aid station at 10 a.m., the sweeps will begin taking down the course and aid stations.
